Cool Backhoe Halloween Costume

My three year old son decided he wanted to be a backhoe for Halloween, not a construction worker, an actual backhoe.

The he body is made with moving boxes wnile the diggers are form core and poster board. The wheels are cookie tins as we wanted the 3-D effect. we needed to make sure to balance the front and back so the back digger was made smaller  to offset the weight of the boom. The whole thing is spray painted which didn’t really give us the coverage we wanted so some places got extra poster board coverage.

He he loves wearing it and it of course is getting rave reviews.

Thanks to the best dad ever.
